Hi Eric,

- re: C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office\SBT\SBCM\SBCMAUT.EXE detected: Gen.Trojan!IK

Please submit the file from the detection list irrespectively

See this case that could be FP

- as for System Restore Point flaggings - disable it - set it “Off” reboot and set it back “On”

- you shouldn't have ran Win32Diag, since a-squared's report does not meet the conditions described in the instruction

After that please update a-squared; rerun Deep Scan and attach fresh log files

My regards

Download ComboFix from one of these locations:

Save as Combo-Fix.exe during the download. ComboFix must be renamed before you download to your Desktop

Link 1

Link 2

Link 3

* IMPORTANT !!! Save Combo-Fix to your Desktop

  • Disable your AntiVirus and AntiSpyware applications, usually via a right click on the System Tray icon. They may otherwise interfere with our tools
    See HERE for help
  • Double click on ComboFix.exe & follow the prompts.
  • As part of it's process, ComboFix will check to see if the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console is installed. With malware infections being as they are today, it's strongly recommended to have this pre-installed on your machine before doing any malware removal. It will allow you to boot up into a special recovery/repair mode that will allow us to more easily help you should your computer have a problem after an attempted removal of malware.
  • Follow the prompts to allow ComboFix to download and install the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console, and when prompted, agree to the End-User License Agreement to install the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console.

**Please note: If the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console is already installed, ComboFix will continue it's malware removal procedures.

Once the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console is installed using ComboFix, you should see the following message:

Click on Yes, to continue scanning for malware.

When finished, ComboFix will produce a log.

Note:

1. Do not mouseclick combofix's window while it's running. That may cause it to stall!

2. Remember to re-enable your anti-virus and anti-spyware before reconnecting to the Internet.

-----------------------------------------------------------

Attach fresh logs for:

  • ComboFix (C:\combofix.txt)
  • a-squared Free/Anti-Malware
  • ISeeYouXP
  • HiJackFree

Let me know of any problems you may have encountered with the above instructions and also let me know how things are running now!

When I ran combofix, a message came up that said that rootkit activity was discovered. It rebooted the computer and continued.

It seems that google search results are no longer hijacked so that is a very good sign. Logs are attached. What next?

Copy the contents of the below quote box to Notepad; Save As FixReg.reg to your Desktop; make sure File Type: is set to All Files (*.*).

REGEDIT4

[-HKEY_USERS\S-1-5-21-2178475379-1560192793-155487171-1006\Software\SAV]

Close Notepad.

Locate FixReg.reg on your Desktop. Double-click on it and answer 'Yes' when asked if you want to merge with the registry.

-----------------------------------------------------------

Download Avenger from HERE and unzip to your desktop.

  • Run Avenger
  • Read the prompt that appears, and press OK
  • Copy & paste the following text in Input script Box:
    Files to delete:
    C:\Documents and Settings\Jen\Desktop\Downloads\win_protection_update(2).exe
    C:\Documents and Settings\Jen\Desktop\Downloads\win_protection_update(3).exe
    C:\Documents and Settings\Jen\Desktop\Downloads\win_protection_update(4).exe
    C:\Documents and Settings\Jen\Desktop\Downloads\win_protection_update.exe


    Then click "Execute".

  • You will be presented with 2 confirmation prompts. Select yes on each. Your system will reboot.
    Note: It is possible that Avenger will reboot your system TWICE.

-----------------------------------------------------------

Attach fresh logs for:

Things seem to be running ok right now. Avenger did not find any rootkits, but Asquared is still showing trojans. Also, the computer experienced a bsod before I followed the latest instructions. It rebooted ok, and so far that has not recurred. Newest logs are attached. Thanks for all the help so far.

Inactive. System Retore Point.

Antivirus Tools Cannot Clean Infected Files in the System Restore Folder.

The System Restore feature in Windows protects all folders and files in the System Restore folder on the Windows partition. This folder and all of its subfolders are the data store that the System Restore feature uses to restore your computer's operating system to a previous state from a previous point in time.

Although some antivirus programs may have the ability to work with files that have been compressed or stored in .zip or .cab file format, the System Restore feature does not permit these utilities to manipulate these files within the data store. The data store is protected for data integrity purposes, and the System Restore feature is the only method you can use to obtain access to the data store. Because of this, the antivirus program is unable to remove the virus from the file or files in the data store. The files in the data store are inactive and can be used only by the System Restore feature.

-----------------------------------------------------------

Your logs look fine.

Unless you are having problems from Malware it is time to do the final steps.

If you used ComboFix, uninstall ComboFix:

  • Click START then RUN and enter the below into the run box and then click OK. (Use only the command of the same name as your copy of combofix.)
  • AvoidTDSS /uninstall or combofix /uninstall or Combo-Fix /uninstall
    Note: The space before /uninstall, must be there. Which command you use depends on if I had you rename ComboFix during download.
    This will uninstall ComboFix and also reset hidden files and folders settings back to Windows defaults.

Delete everything in C:\!KillBox (If I didn't have you use KillBox, then this won't be present)

Delete the following from your Desktop (If they exist)

Avenger.exe

Avenger.txt

Avenger.zip

CFscript.txt

dds.scr

dds.pif

DisableAutoRuns.reg

fixes.bat

FixMe.reg

FixReg.reg

ISeeYouXP.exe

ISeeYouXP.lnk

ISeeYouXP.txt

Win32kDiag.exe

Win32kDiag.txt

Anything else I had you use

Delete the following files: (If they exist)

C:\Avenger.txt

C:\ComboFix.txt

Delete the following folders: (If they exist)

C:\Avenger

C:\AvoidTDSSS

C:\ComboFix

C:\SDFix

C:\Qoobox

You can delete and uninstall any programs I had you download, that you do not wish to keep on the system.

Empty the Recycle Bin

Run CCleaner

Turn off System restore to flush all your restore points then turn system restore back on.

To manually turn off System Restore, follow these steps:

1. Click Start, right-click My Computer, and then click Properties.

2. Click the System Restore tab.

3. Click to select the Turn off System Restore check box (or the Turn off System Restore on all drives check box), and then click OK.

Run Windows Update and update your Windows Operating System.

Run the Secunia Online Software Inspector, this will inspect your system for software that is out-of-date and in need of updating. Update anything program/application detected as being out-dated.

That should take care of everything.

Safe Surfing!

Before I go through the finishing-up steps, there was a trojan warning through Avast yesterday. This occurred after following the previous instructions (while waiting for your reply). I have attached a screen shot of the Avast log. Is this indicating that a problem still exists, is it a residual or false positive, or did Avast prevent a new problem? Thanks.

Hi Eric,

Irrespectively, please attach the report from Avast (not just an image)

and submit files to Avast developers

That's not easy (takes more time ) to research all entries when it's a "picture"

Sure entries like a-squared being flagged could be FP

My regards

Sorry about that... somehow missed the export option when I first looked at it. Here is the log file. Working on passing the info to Avast right after submitting this reply. Primarily it is the entry dated 12/6 that concerns me since this was after all of the cleaning we did on the system.

In the next dialog, select all drives showing

Click OK to start the scan

Note: The scan can take some time. DO NOT run any other programs while the scan is running

When the scan is complete, the Save Report button will become available. Click this and save the report to your Desktop as RootRepeal.txt

Attach it to your reply.

OK, no RootKits where found by RootRepeal.

One more tool.

Download -->> OTL <<-- to your desktop.
